Exploring the Ancestry of Rebeckah MINOT: Events, Pictures, and Documents

Concord, Massachusetts, USA
Old Chapter House, 1708.

The earliest sections of the Thomas Pellet House, off Monument Square and across from the First Parish Church in Concord, date to 1670. The house has had a number of additions, much of the present structure being completed by early in the eighteenth century. The frame house is notable for its stuccoed facade, intended to imitate stonework and most likely added when Benjamin Barrett owned the house in the 1730s. The house was later the home of Dr. Ezekiel Brown, a surgeon in the Revolutionary War. In the nineteenth century, the house became known as the Deacon Tolman or Old Tolman House, after owner Elisha Tolman, who had a shoe shop next door. Another owner was Thomas Heald, a lawyer and member of the Concord Social Circle. Harriett Lothrop, who wrote the Five Little Peppers stories under the name Margaret Sidney, lived in the famous Wayside in Concord and saved a number of historic houses in town in the later nineteenth century, including the Old Tolman...

Concord, Massachusetts, USA
Colonial Inn

1716 – Concord’s Colonial Inn’s original structure was built.

1775 – One of the Inn’s original buildings was used as a storehouse for arms and provisions during the Revolutionary War.
